Convenience stores robbed
Rochester police say that two convenience store robberies during the night might have been committed by the same person.
A man walked into the SuperAmerica station on 55th Street Northwest about midnight and told the male clerk it was a robbery. The clerk gave the robber money from the cash register. The robber left on foot. No weapon was shown.
About 4:50 a.m. today, a man went into the SuperAmerica station on 37th Street Northwest and, hand in pocket, told the clerk it was a robbery. He left with an undisclosed amount of money. No weapon was shown. This time, the suspect got into a light-colored, late model pickup.
In both cases, the suspect is described as being white, in his 20s, about 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighing about 175 pounds. He had sandy brown hair. Police are reviewing surveillance video from the stores to determine if the robber was the same person.
